Subject: What's cooking in git.git (May 2022, #03; Tue, 10)
Date: Tue, 10 May 2022 18:52:33 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <xmqq4k1wq1i6.fsf@gitster.g> (raw)

Here are the topics that have been cooking in my tree.  Commits
prefixed with '+' are in 'next' (being in 'next' is a sign that a
topic is stable enough to be used and are candidate to be in a
future release).  Commits prefixed with '-' are only in 'seen',
and aren't considered "accepted" at all.

The 2.36 release turned out to be a release with unusually high
number of regressions.  Git 2.36.1 has been tagged to deliver fixes
to a handful of them.

There unfortunately are a few more whose fixes have not been
adequately reviewed or agreed upon.

 - hooks no longer is connected directly to the standard output.
   cf. <>

 - "sudo make install" does not work out-of-the-box.
   cf. <>

These fixed soon, a new maintenance release needs to follow.

This cycle will conclude in early July (;
we are in week #3 of the cycle.

Copies of the source code to Git live in many repositories, and the
following is a list of the ones I push into or their mirrors.  Some
repositories have only a subset of branches.

With maint, master, next, seen, todo:


With all the integration branches and topics broken out:

Even though the preformatted documentation in HTML and man format
are not sources, they are published in these repositories for
convenience (replace "htmldocs" with "manpages" for the manual

* cd/bisect-messages-from-pre-flight-states (2022-05-06) 2 commits
 - bisect: output bisect setup status in bisect log
 - bisect: output state before we are ready to compute bisection

 "git bisect" was too silent before it is ready to start computing
 the actual bisection, which has been corrected.

 In Git 2.36 we revamped the way how hooks are invoked.  One change
 that is end-user visible is that the output of a hook is no longer
 directly connected to the standard output of "git" that spawns the
 hook, which was noticed post release.  This is getting corrected.

 - Documentation/technical: add cruft-packs.txt

 A mechanism to pack unreachable objects into a "cruft pack",
 instead of ejecting them into loose form to be reclaimed later, has
 been introduced.

 Waiting for discussion to settle.

* tk/simple-autosetupmerge (2022-04-29) 3 commits
 - push: new config option "push.autoSetupRemote" supports "simple" push
 - push: default to single remote even when not named origin
 - branch: new autosetupmerge option 'simple' for matching branches

 "git -c branch.autosetupmerge=simple branch $A $B" will set the $B
 as $A's upstream only when $A and $B shares the same name, and "git
 -c push.default=simple" on branch $A would push to update the
 branch $A at the remote $B came from.  Also more places use the
 sole remote, if exists, before defaulting to 'origin'.

 The performance of the "untracked cache" feature has been improved
 when "--untracked-files=<mode>" and "status.showUntrackedFiles"
 are combined.

 Will merge to 'master'.
